Everyone knows having dinner at Six Seven means spending six or seven times more than you normally would on dinner, unless you go there during Restaurant Week: two Sunday-Thursday stretches in which over 150 restos are slinging three-course dinners for just $28, and in some cases lunch for a price even sweeter than 16 ($15!). Test your knowledge of the participants by guessing who's behind these SRW spreads, then click the hyperlinks to find the answer:
The Fixe: Foie gras torchon w/ chef's accompaniment; Parisienne gnocchi w/ butternut squash, tarragon, pumpkin seed & Parmesan; pumpkin pie w/ brown sugar ice cream, vanilla foam & "drunk" raisins. The Hint: If you're an especially good child (and avid reader of Roger Levesque's favorite email newsletter) you may have made the man behind this spot's recipe for French toast on Mother's Day
The Fixe: Braised Pork Skewer w/ harissa jam & tartar sauce; Mussels Normandy style w/ cream, shallot & herbs; classic créme caramel. The Hint: Darth Vader wishes he was this place's father, so he could eat for free
The Fixe: Five apps (like smoked fish crostini) for the table to start; potato gnocchi w/ brown butter, sage & Parmesan; and ricotta cheesecake w/ fresh figs & balsamic reduction. The Hint: Even when it's not Restaurant Week, this place makes you feel fancy by plying you with courses chosen by the chef
The Fixe: Duck rillettes w/ pickled figs, toast & finnes herbs; cavatelli w/ lobster mushroom brown butter; caramel pear tart w/ pine nuts & buttermilk ice cream. The Hint: This is the perfect place to bring a small group of people with shared interests or tastes, esp. one that is exclusive of other people
The Fixe: Bacon & smoky blue cheese fritter; chicken chasseur; bread pudding. The Hint: Specializing in regionally sourced eats, part of this place's name is what you'd get by multiplying the price of dinner during SRW not by six or seven, but by 12.8.
